English abstract:
A wide number of effective clause-elimination procedures for SAT is based on the clause-redundancy property called blocked clauses. In this paper, we introduce a generalization of blocked clauses to first-order logic and show how they can be used in a preprocessing step within an automated theorem prover. We report on experimental results obtained from a prototype implementation in Vampire.
